Entertainment Weekly - Kyle Anderson
The film—skillfully helmed by Brent Hodge and Derik Murray and featuring talking-head testimonials from family members, friends, and costars such as Mike Myers and Bob Odenkirk—heralds "Tommy Boy" as definitive and notes how winning a romantic lead Farley is in "Coneheads".

The A.V. Club - Kyle Ryan
As a thoughtful examination of its subject’s life, I Am Chris Farley has its moments, but it plays more like a loving tribute than documentary, as if a bunch of his friends got together to tell stories. In that way, it succeeds, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that the picture isn’t complete.

RogerEbert.com - Brian Tallerico
Captures why Chris Farley mattered, even if it does sometimes gloss over a few of the reasons our friend is no longer with us.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Brad Wheeler
A bittersweet salute, appraisal and explanation of the early-nineties Saturday Night Live troupe mainstay.

New York Daily News - Unnamed
The movie is never able to get to the bottom of why the man so loved by his friends was unable to be comfortable out of the spotlight. But I Am Chris Farley is a warm, nostalgic reminder of a talent who died before his time.
